Chainalysis Reports Possible North Korean Link in Euler Finance Hack

Cointime Official

Blockchain data platform Chainalysis reported that 100 ETH stolen in Monday's Euler Finance hack have been transferred to an address linked to a previous hack carried out by North Korea-linked actors.

This development raises the possibility that the Euler hack was also perpetrated by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK), but it could also be a misdirection by other hackers. 

On March 13th, 2023, Euler Finance was attacked, and the attacker profited approximately 200 million US dollars.
